The Prius has been iconic since its inception, as one of the first mass-produced hybrid vehicles of its time. It is so archetypical, in fact, that the name ‘Prius’ has become practically synonymous with the concept of ‘hybrid car’. This year, it re-emerges with a whole new model, stepping once again into the world of technological advancements to procure the latest-and-greatest in the field of fuel efficiency and performance.

The 2017 Toyota Prius Prime coming soon near Shorewood, IL, is ready to shatter your expectations and the archaic notion that some people still have about hybrids being slow. The Prime introduces Toyota's first dual motor drive system, which delivers a breathtaking experience and gives you the option to drive with pure electricity, gas, or both. A larger battery pack extends your EV range, estimated at 120 MPGe. The 2017 Prius Prime will be able to be charged at home and at public charging stations, plus it will feature regenerative braking to replenish small amounts to the battery every time you have to stop at a light, a sign, or in traffic.

Its sleek aerodynamic shape is not only engineered to maximize efficiency and cut through the wind, but also to make a dramatic appearance wherever it roams, be it I-55 or Cottage Street. A double-wishbone rear suspension, lower center of gravity, and increased body rigidity provide more responsive maneuvering and cornering. Standard LED lighting is featured throughout. The Quad-LED headlights and LED taillights leave a lasting impression.

On the inside, the 2017 Prime strives to provide you with even more comfort and control. The Prime’s standard heated front seats hug your frame with sport side bolsters, while the 60/40 split rear seats help maximize cargo space when folded down. Wrap your fingers around the available heated steering wheel to keep your hands warm and toasty during those winter chills. An available Qi-compatible smartphone charging station2 will keep your mobile juiced up without the hassle and mess of cables. Touch and swipe on the available 11.6-inch vertical HD Multi-Information Display which gives you a smartphone-style experience.
